Personal thoughts of Wan Saiful Wan Jan

Apa itu liberalisme?

I found this file yesterday. I think it must be a transcript of a lecture. Hence the language. But, it is a good read anyway.

    Thanks for the article attached.

    I have just recently discussed with my lecturer and he suggested me to do my PhD on Edmund Burke. He was an Irish Protestant, member of the British Parliament at the end of the 18th century.

And he was the one who said leaders who believe in higher powers are less likely to become corrupt. Again, apologies because I cannot remember the exact quote.
